How Long Will My Personal Injury Lawsuit Take?

You are injured. You did nothing wrong. Perhaps your injury was caused by an inattentive driver. Maybe a store owner’s negligence caused you to slip and fall.

Whatever the cause, you deserve to be compensated for your pain, suffering, current and ongoing medical expenses and lost wages. But, you want to know – how long will your personal injury lawsuit will take?

The answer depends on the case. Some cases are settled quickly, others can take years.

Here is a look at some of the factors that determine how long your personal injury lawsuit will take:

CHOOSING A LAWYER

The sooner you contact an experienced Boulder injury lawyer, the sooner they can start working your case. If you delay selecting a Boulder injury lawyer, you are essentially delaying a settlement or trial. So, select your Boulder injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Once you have chosen your lawyer, he or she will start working with you to build your case, file the lawsuit and hold whoever is responsible for your injuries liable.

YOUR ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS

A successful personal injury lawsuit requires a significant amount of documentation.Your Boulder injury lawyer will need medical records, evidence and testimony. The more information you can gather, from the time you are injured to the time you connect with your lawyer, the more quickly your case is likely to go.

Keep all medical bills and receipts. Keep copious notes about your recovery. Keep documentation that you have been following your doctors’ orders. Be sure to keep all of your information organized and easily accessible to your attorney.

THE DEFENDANT

It is entirely possible that your personal injury lawsuit could end in a relatively quick settlement. It is equally possible that your lawsuit could be tied up for months or years in court. How quickly your lawsuit reaches a conclusion largely depends on the person, people or organization you are holding liable for your injuries. If the defendant or defendants choose to settle the suit, it could end quickly. If not, your lawsuit could take a while.

If you or someone you love has been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, contact a Boulder personal injury lawyer today. The sooner you do, the sooner your personal injury lawsuit can begin, and the sooner you can be fairly compensated for your pain, current and future medical bills, lost wages and suffering.
